Today we honor our fallen military men and woman. This Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a scaled down copy of the Tomb in Arlington National Cemetery. This Tomb is located at the Ivy Green Cemetery in Bremerton, WA. In Sept of this year hundreds of volunteers from the Navy, Army, Marines, Air force, Coast Guard, Lowe's Home Improvement, Sons of the American Revolution spent days cleaning up this Veteran's Cemetery.

    In Australia November 11 is Remembrance Day.
    It marks the end of World War I.

    Thanks for posting this ttom, it's nice to see how other countries honor their veterans.
    In Canada we only have the one day of observance originally known as Armistice Day.
    In 1931, the federal parliament adopted an act to amend the Armistice Day Act, providing that the day should be observed on November 11 and that the day should be known as "Remembrance Day".

    I've personally witnessed the 24-7 ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, twice. It's one of the most hair raising, emotional (for me) events ever.
    I will never forget!
